We stayed at the Resort for 3 days over Easter 2016. We had 2 young boys and a toddler in tow, and expecting our fourth at the time. We stayed in the one bedroom apartment on the top floor overlooking the beach. The room and the view were stunning. The bathroom is absolutely amazing and very convenient for families to...

When I first visited Far North Queensland, I had the opportunity to visit Green island. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. Fast forward a few years and some family were visiting so when the opportunity to visit an island presented itself green island was off the list and Fitzroy island came on to the scene. Fitzroy is...

We went to reception were told room not ready but could store bags and use facilities, so we headed straight to the pool. Nice area, big pool with a swim up bar which did open...

We travelled to Fitzroy for a relaxing break with close friends; we didn't imagine how beautiful Fitzroy Island really is until we got there. Ocean suits are quite roomy and have a great view and were friendly and cleaned the rooms daily. Meals were excellent and we never had to wait for Foxy’s or Zephyr’s. Staff were happy to help...

We stayed for a week in an ocean view suite for my 40th birthday and we couldn't have asked for a better place to chill, snorkel, dive and just be. We spent our spare time doing a few of the walks around the island and enjoying cocktails in the pool bar. The staff were amazing - all so very friendly...

We went over yesterday with a group of 10 very responsible 20 year olds for a friends 21st birthday. We brought over our own beers and a bottle of red wine which was all CONFISCATED!!!!! Security and the older men patrolling around the area were rude and it felt like we were being watched the whole duration of our stay....

Our experience was perfect. Good weather, good room, good service. An amazing dive experience and one of the best places I have ever visited. Just for giving something to improve, the wifi network could be cheaper and faster.

Overall the room was comfortable and needed a few minor repairs. Meals in the Restaurant are on the higher side but you can get almost the same options at Foxy's Bar for less. One reason you would go to Fitzroy Island place are the STAFF. Angela, Jodie? Tommy and in particular Samantha and Rebecca were very friendly and helpful. Nothing...

I picked the perfect spot to get over a jet-lag and start to unwind...quiet, tranquil place with as much/little to do as you want. Kayaking, an evening glass bottom boat trip, a visit to the Cairns Turtle Rehab Center and a walk over to Nudey Beach were the main highlights. The hotel was comfortable too...great place to start a 2...
